Patient waiter. Kind and accommodating host. Menu was not what we expected. Menu was alot more limited than the menu online. So was disappointed that we went to an Irish pub and could not have Irish food. Location is perfect. Relaxing and friendly.

We were on our way to see Billy Joel at MSG, running a little late....... we were seated immediately, we had a reservation, which is a must if its a big night at the Garden. Sally, our Irish server was excellent ; she took our order, brought our wine right away, the food was served and she was back to check and brought our second wine service and the check immediately when we asked for it. So even though we don't like loud noise/music when we dine, some how we really enjoyed our dining experience.......

We came into the city to see Billy Joel and made reservation to have a quick dinner before the show. From the time we arrived they seated us right away and ask us if it was a special occasion. They knew our plans and got our orders and were very attentive. The food and service was great. We had plenty of time to get to the show. I highly recommend this restaurant. I hope to come back again and try some other things on the menu.

Service very slow for a dinner, midweek, at 5:30. Very noisy, no Irish ambience. A nice sports bar if that’s what you’re looking for.

The outside is very deceiving but once you walk in, what a pleasant surprise! I highly recommend this place. I had the best salad while the people next to me looked like they were tremendously enjoying their awesome comfort food. Service was superb as well. I will definitely return to this restaurant.

Service was great. We had Fish/Chips and Shepherd's pie, both delicious. Very convenient to Madison Square Garden. Nice choice of beer. A little too loud to have normal dinner conversation if you're seated on the first floor.

Met friends and family at Tir Na Nog before a concert at MSG. Very convenient location. Two of our party arrived a few minutes before our reservation time and were seated and given menus. When the rest of us arrived, it took some time for our server to provide menus and she seemed a bit put out that we had not decided on what to order...ummm, six of us were sharing two menus. The food selection was not extensive, but many of the items were enticing. I ordered the wild mushroom flat bread which was the perfect size and absolutely delicious. Others in my party ordered the fish tacos and enjoyed them although the surly server did state that the tortillas were corn when in fact they were flour (and therefore not gluten-free.) The Korean BBQ Lettuce wraps were also a big hit and just the right amount of food when paired with the Caesar salad. The turkey burger was juicy and well prepared. The noise level was very high and it was difficult to converse with anyone not directly next to you...which was still not easy. The server we had was crabby and not very attentive. I recognize it was busy, but maybe one stop by the table to see how we were doing would have been nice. We had to "snag" someone walking by to get more water since our server seemed oblivious to us as she rushed by several times without even looking our way.
Overall, the reservation held true and we were not rushed, food was delicious and other than the loudness, the decor and ambiance was nice. The cost was fair, although, like most places in NYC it would be nice if drink prices did not rival entree prices! I would go back and would recommend it to others.

the Pretzel appetizer was really good and we all had a burger of sorts, which were all done as we asked and quite delicious, though the bun could have a little more sturdiness or toasting to it. Did not know there was an upstairs, which may have a lower sound level than bar area.

Food was very good. We shared apps and loved all four different dinners. The waitress was not interested in being there at all and was a non entity. The restaurant was basically empty so it wasn’t that she was overworked. In spite of her the food was very good

We went here for dinner before a Rangers game at MSG (this restaurant is across the street from MSG/Penn Station, which makes it very convenient).

I had the bronzino and my lady had the fish and chips. Both were delicious. Service was attentive but not overbearing. Highly recommend.

Perfect spot for a pre-game or pre-event meal or drinks before an event at Madison Square Garden. It is right across the street from MSG and large parking garage is nearby. Despite it being a busy night the host greeted us warmly upon our arrival and quickly took us to our table. Great comfort food - we had the meatball appetizer and the hummus along with the fish and chips and burgers. Moscow mules served in copper mugs and a nice beer menu as well.

We were looking for a spot near Penn Station/ Chelsea. Found Tir na nOg and read quite a number of positive reviews.
I realized it was a popular watering hole for people attending events at MSQ. Knowing that there were no events scheduled for that Friday, we made a reservation.
We were greeted promptly by a hostess/server. Right away she recognized that we would not be happy on the lower bar level , and brought us upstairs, where the joyful noise was a bit attenuated. This still does change the fact that this a bar with a boisterous clientele.

I must comment on the attentive service of the staff. This high level of attention to customers , coupled with a simple but varied menu, made for a good experience at Tir na nOg.

We take an annual overnight trip into the city at Christmas time with our two kids and were looking for a cozy festive place to eat. Tir ma nOg was it! They had great tasting food selection for kids and adults. The atmosphere was just what we were looking for. It was nicely decorated for the holiday and the inside was unique with many quant cozy places to gather. Food was flavorful and their was no line which may have deferred some but glad we took the chance.

We loved the second floor table by the window we had for our group of 5. The setting was inviting and charming and the noise level on the second floor was not loud. Each of us enjoyed our food. The service was friendly and prompt and the location was perfect with only a moment's walk to the play.
